Ever feel like you spread yourself way too thin? You make commitments to multiple projects and realize that you aren’t being your best in every area. That’s how I’m starting to feel right now. For whatever reason, I decided to make a lot of changes all at once in my life. A new job, my health & wellness course, the blog, my fitness program….and the list goes on. As we all know by now, I’m a perfectionist and it’s bothering me that certain things aren’t “just” right. Nothing is going to be perfect; however, I know that I need a lil kick in the rear to do some things better. Unlike the past, I won’t just quit because everything isn’t just so. This time, I’m staying the course and will just do things to the very best of my ability.
For one, I need to be more consistent posting in here and get in a regular schedule with it. Every Sunday I’m going to post my goals for the week in here. Maybe, if I let others see my goals, it will help keep me accountable. I really like seeing things in writing. Practically any scrap of paper you find at my desk or in my apartment has some sort of list scribbled all over it. There are lists in my gym bag, in my car and probably even under my bed. 😉 I love them though, so why not post one here, ya know? On Saturday, I’ll repost my goals and let you know if I accomplished them. What do you think?
As for today, I can’t say there was anything exciting going on. The computer system I use at work for the majority of my projects was on the fritz, so I got to read some of my favorite blogs and even found a few old friends along the way. 🙂
I really think that my late night on Friday is still catching up to me. I was EXHAUSTED pulling myself out of bed this morning. No gym for this girly today, but I will be sure to get there over the next 5 days. I have my plan and I’m sticking to it!!
My eats were pretty standard “Kim” meals today. I need to start thinking outside the box. My tummy was grumbling from the moment my eyes fluttered open this morning. I held off until I got to work because I definitely would have been late if I stopped my prettifying process to nosh on something.
To the kitchen I trotted, as soon as I walked in the door of my office. I made coffee and cooked some oatmeal mixed with All Whites and 1/4 of an apple. A sprinkle of cinnamon and splenda spiced it up nicely for me.
After taming my belly, my coworker and I got started on our office antics. We got some work done too. Just so ya know. 😉 Actually, I got to be creative today and design our company’s new envelopes. Of course, in the midst of it all, our computers had to be shut down and somehow all of my work was lost! Thankfully, I have a good memory and was able to recreate what I had worked on. My memory is definitely a positive, but can also be a negative sometimes. You know, when you remember things that you wish you really didn’t. Anyway……
Lunch was an unpictured Muscle Milk Light RTD. Chocolate flavor, if you’re really wondering. With it was another quarter of my apple and about 1/2 an ounce of almonds. Afterwards, I ran up to the park to get some reading in and also soak up a little sun.
My snack also went unphotographed. Bad blogger. 😦 It was truly yummy though. I mixed 1/4c of raw oatmeal with a snack sized 0% Fage and let it sit in the fridge for a few hours. By snack time it was ready to be devoured w/ the remainder of my apple.
A few hours later I was on my way back to the train. I enjoyed a peaceful ride and then made the trek to my car. I raced home to get dinner started. I have no idea why I was so hungry today, because there was nothing out of my norm that would cause the hunger. I knew I was going to be creating something with the ground turkey I had waiting for me in my fridge. I decided to make it with an Italian twist. Guys, I even took pics. 😉
In The Mix:
- 4oz Extra Lean Ground Turkey
- 1/2 Baby Zucchini
- Sliced Onion and Mushroom
- 1/4c Kidney Beans
- 1/4c Mushrooms
- 1tsp minced garlic
- 1/4c Tomato Sauce (I used a garlic flavored sauce)
- Sprinkle of Parm (made it complete)
Well, that’s all she wrote, folks. For tonight, that is. Hope you enjoy the remainder of your evening. I’ll be hitting the books for a bit and then it’ll be time to RELAX! 🙂
